Review: Emily and the Strangers

The newest Emily the Strange collection is now available in hardcover from Dark Horse; Emily and the Strangers continues the story of Rob Reger’s cute little sociopath and her cats.

The story is fun, but it’s Emily Ivie’s art that jumped out at me. It’s startlingly good. I haven’t run across Ivie before, but I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for her work from now on.

Review – Beasts of Burden: Hunters & Gatherers

If you haven’t checked out Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson’s title Beasts of Burden, the latest one-shot, Hunters and Gatherers, is a good place to start. The premise is clever and fun; a pack of neighborhood pets become paranormal investigators and save the local animals from monsters. The story is so well written that even if you’ve never read a single issue, you won’t have any trouble figuring out what’s going on.

But it’s Jill Thompson’s watercolor style that really caught my attention. (Not that Dorkin’s writing isn’t awesome, I just fell in love with the art.)

Review: Serenity – Leaves On the Wind

What Firefly fans want most is not a second season that picks up ten years after the last episode. They don’t want a Serenity Two that meets up with our favorite characters a decade later. What fans want most is a second season that picks up exactly where season one left off; same characters, same ship, everybody the exact same age where we last saw them.

As this is physically impossible without time-travel, Dark Horse is attempting the next best thing: Leaves on the Wind, a brand new Firefly book that takes place less than a year after Serenity.

Based on the first issue, I’m very optimistic about the series.
